Thursday Thoughts

Thursday Thoughts with Ramblings of a Suburban Mom

So happy to be doing my second link up!  Too bad I don't know how to add the button with the link attached....I figured out how to do it if there's html code with the button.  If anyone at all can help me out that would be awesome.  Clearly I'm "new".

Since ThredUp seems to be a common topic amongst bloggers in this link up, I think I'll share that I ordered a bag a few days ago.  Hopefully it will arrive soon.  The bag was free to order, and then I fill it with quality gently-used items and send it back to them.  The best part? The shipping is FREE for me!  They pay shipping for the bags full of clothing.  Everyone else, it seems, has been doing reviews on little kids' clothing. When mine were babies and toddlers I did a LOT of consignment shopping.  I still do, but now that they are older and wear through their clothes more, I don't find quite as many deals.  I'm thinking I'll send in some of my clothes and do a review on ladies' items.  Maybe I'll send a few pieces of my girls' clothes to (they are 9 and 13).  I'm not sure how big the bag is that I ordered...

I am looking forward to our "girls" weekend this weekend!  The boys will be gone so it's just me and my girls.  We love our special nights together with movies, junk food, nail polish, sleeping in my bed with me, staying up late, etc.  So looking forward to it!

I am really loving Starbucks Refreshers!  Just add the powedered packet into 16 oz of water.  I've been having one every afternoon at work.  It's such a great pick-me-up and the flavors are great!

Tomorrow is payday (woot woot) which means I will get to order my Advocare 24-Day Challenge kit!  I'm going to start on July 1st, after my much awaited vaca to the coast!  I'm so excited for this challenge.  I could use a good cleansing detox and clean eating!  I have been really out of control lately.  Sad face.  I've heard great things about this challenge and can't wait to start!!!!

Guess that's all.  Have a great Thursday!


  1. I have done pretty well on my women's clothes! I am losing weight so I have a ton to get rid of. I have been super pleased by the extra cash even though I wish I would get more on the kids' clothes :)

    Shipping isn't always free on the bag (usually a $4.95 deposit) so if you think you will use a few, order a few while it's free!


    1. Ahhh....thanks for the tips! I didn't see an option to order more than one bag, but I really didn't play around on the site much. Maybe I'll just go in and place another order for another bag now. With the $4.95 deposit, is that when you order the bag or is it for postage to send it back?

      So much to learn! Thanks again for your comment, info, and time :)

  2. Are you going to start the Challenge with us on the 24th?? I cannot wait to start!! Eeek!!

    And I don't consignment shop, but I am all over the clearance racks at the Gap. OMG final sale stuff there is amazing. And so cheap!

    Thanks for linking up!
